THIS IS MY FINAL YEAR AT BALL STATE!!! Again, this year I will be participating in a Riley Dance Marathon and standing on my feet in honor of the kids at Riley Hospital for Children! Riley Hospital for Children, at Indiana University Health, is Indiana’s only comprehensive children’s research hospital. This year I will be a part of Riley Relations, a committee where I get to work hands on with Riley Kids and their families all year long leading up to the marathon!
I am on the basketball team and have worked for over 5 years with Best Buddies and have ran my own basketball camps for Down Syndrome Of Louisville and Down Syndrome of Indiana. My best friend, Mickey Deputy, is a Riley Kid. She has changed my life in more ways than one. Because of her, and many other kids who have touched my life, I am wanting to raise money and make a difference. All proceeds from this event directly benefit Riley Hospital. I am so excited to be involved and will be volunteering my time and energy throughout the year to raise money for this incredible cause.
Riley Dance Marathon is a philanthropic movement in Indiana led by high school and college students. Last year, more than 80 Riley Dance Marathons raised more than $6.5 million for the kids at Riley Hospital! I am very passionate about Riley Hospital and I really believe in the work my classmates and I are doing for this cause. I would love for you to be a part of my success this year. Will you please support me as I strive to reach my personal fundraising goal for the kids? I know that our Riley Dance Marathon could not be as successful as it is without your help!
